People have it or not. She has good timing without really pushing it. The novel is loosely based on her life, but is mostly fictional.

I am not bulimic. I do not have an eating disorder. But it becomes clear that the story Insomniac Games is telling agrees with that perspective, too.
It's part of what makes this game, and this Peter Parker, so special — not as the typical superhero adventure story, but as one of the rare games that does right by its powerful women characters.
Let a girl work, Peter Image: Caught in the awkward in-between of young adulthood, he's kind of a bum — and I say that with love, because Spider-Man's hapless humanity is exactly what gives him a special place in our superhero-loving hearts. But struggling to pay rent, stuck in an underpaid internship, and feeling sorry for himself after getting dumped by his girlfriend, Peter's in the throes of the dreaded quarter-life crisis.
MJ, on the other hand, is thriving. Unlike many other movie and comic book portrayals of Mary Jane, the MJ of 's Spider-Man is an actual three-dimensional character rather than the more usual girl-next-door bombshell who serves as the female prize for our nerd-turned-hero.
Instead, this MJ is a promising young journalist at the Daily Bugle. She, like Miles Morales, is even a playable character during certain stealth missions she embarks on to go above and beyond the call and arguably even ethics of journalism.

Before the game even starts, we learn she did the unthinkable of breaking up with the web-swinging boy wonder of New York City. They're clearly still on friendly terms, but we are left as clueless about why she did it as Peter and Peter is pretty damn clueless, as always.
But like Peter, we learn it had a whole lot to do with her valuing her own self-respect above all else. The emotional battle that plays out over the course of Marvel's Spider-Man is unlike the one we're accustomed to seeing for the beloved hero, too. It's less about Peter Parker learning the great responsibility that comes with great power.

More readily, Peter must learn the great responsibility that comes with a great love. As a grown-ass woman with big aspirations, MJ doesn't have time to coach Peter through the difficult journey of growing out of his man-childishness — regardless of how charming he might carry that immaturity.
There's still hope that he'll become the boyfriend worthy of her love. Peter's too busy playing the lone wolf hero to realize MJ saves his ass as much as he saves hers Image: Having suffered the trauma of losing Uncle Ben, the dire need to keep all his other loved ones alive at all costs is more than understandable. Like the best character flaws, it comes from a place of love but results in the ultimate rift in their relationship. But from MJ's perspective, the result is a boyfriend who treats her like a China doll, ready to break at any moment.
In reality, MJ is an unstoppable force of bravery and cunning who takes care of her damn self, thank you very much. Her stealth missions, while some of the more mechanically uninteresting gameplay moment, are always revolved around dire narrative stakes she handles with a collected competence. Hell, she defuses a biological bomb from detonating in Grand Central station, while commanding Spider-Man her ex, let's not forget like he's the well-trained attack dog in the situation.
Finally, women are getting to play out their power fantasies in video games, amiright? The more subtle examples of how her maturity surpasses Peter's is in every one of their more intimate interactions, too.
Can't we all relate to the difficulty of standing your ground and not giving in when the ex you still love keeps trying to go back to the way things were? But MJ knows betters. She's unwavering in her commitment to getting what she deserves, whether from Peter or at work.
She can't accept Peter back until he reconciles with what went wrong. Only real men let their girlfriends save their asses multiple times without feeling immasculated Image: Even in their first reunion during the Demons' attack on the museum, she calls him out for acting like she's the damsel only moments after she saved his ass.
Like many young men his age, that all seems to fall on deaf ears for Peter. But as the game progresses, he does start to show small, promising signs of growth. Or at the very least, of being met with the consequences of not showing his badass ex girlfriend some goddamn respect. The real turning point in Peter's transformation into high-quality boyfriend material comes in the second act of the game, after MJ gets an exclusive with Jefferson Miles.
